Question
Hello Lou,

Would you like to help me with theses lyrics?
I tried to transcribe them but English is not my native language
So I can't understand them all even if it seems obvious to you.
If you don't like to do that, that's OK.
thank you so much anyway

My sunny day turn into crystal night
I’m all ? alone, girl, everything’s alright, yeah

Your graffiti is on the wall
Say ?? recall
Tiny hearts ??
Next day baby, the dream was shot
I see your reflection ?? broken glass
See you dancing on ??
Seem that you work ??
Love ??

Sunny day turn into crystal night
I’m all ?? alone, girl, everything’s alright, yeah
My sunny day turn into crystal night
You by my side and everything’s alright, yeah baby

Stranded in the city for every
When you left, you took my dream
Now my future in hand
Never forget the times we had
You stand on the boulevard
Talked at night we never got tired

Sunny day turn into crystal night
I’m all alone, girl, everything’s alright
My sunny days turn into crystal nights
I’m all alone baby, and everything’s alright, yeah baby
My sunny days turn into crystal nights
I’m all alone, baby and everything’s alright

Yeah sunny days, crystal nights
How I remember so well

Answer
Hi Christian,

Here you go:

GOTTA GET BACK TO YOU

When I was young and full of rage
I never gave a thought to time or space

A man is born without a care
One day his heart breaks in despair
Love is shed in anger for someone else's pain

Need a little mercy.....(repeated)


Would you mind sending me Crystal Nights and No John No as separate questions so I can do them individually for you?

Thanks
